As expected, former East Carolina basketball coach Joe Dooley will make a second run as the Pirate’s head basketball coach.
The ECU Board of Trustees are set to approve Dooley’s deal on Wednesday in a special, called meeting at 5pm. The school is then scheduled to make the official announcement after that, with Dooley to be introduced at a news conference on campus on Thursday.
Dooley served as an assistant coach for Eddie Payne at ECU before taking over the head coaching job in 1995. He is the only ECU coach in the modern era to have a winning record. Dooley was 57-52 in his previous four seasons with the Pirates.
